Washington, July 9 (ANI): Scottish actor James McAvoy has confessed that he would like to be like American actor Matt Damon.

McAvoy revealed that he would not mind doing something like the action franchise Bourne.

“I want to be like Matt Damon and do a hugely successful thinking-man’’s action franchise like Bourne,” People mag quoted the Atonement star, currently co-starring with Angelina Jolie in Wanted, as saying in the August cover story of Details.

Though he does not seem to be a Bourne-like person, with the 29-year-old admitting that he’’s lived a quiet lifestyle throughout his 20s.

“All of my friends got so drunk they couldn”t even walk, let alone dance, and you just stand there going, ”So what am I going to do? he said.

Being the kind of person that he is, instead of partying, in 2006 McAvoy settled down with actress Anne-Marie Duff, who is eight years his senior.

On being asked about his wife and his sister, during the interview, he refused to dish out anything about them.

“If anybody wants to talk about their own family, fine,” McAvoy said.

“It’’s not that I think it’’s wrong it’’s just that I think it’’s dangerous,” he stated.

The actor is, however, vocal about the state of Hollywood and the pressures it puts on women.

“I saw a clip of something this girl has on a humongous fat suit and she’’s singing that ”my milk shake brings all the boys to the yard” song, and I just felt like, ”That’’s so disrespectful.” I would not want to be a woman in this industry. Horrible,” he added. (ANI)
